Africa and Europe collaborate on establishment of new research infrastructures

The next 'Promoting African – European Research Infrastructure Partnerships' (PAERIP) workshop will be held at the South African House in London’s Trafalgar Square, UK, on October 17, 2012. It will focus on Africa-Europe collaboration in establishing new research infrastructures, through African participation in the planned European infrastructures prioritised in the ESFRI roadmap. The event will be organised by the Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU) with the support of Department of Science and Technology (DST) and Sigma Orionis.
The socio-economic impact of research infrastructures in the context of bi-regional cooperation will also be analysed, including the resultant funding opportunities, which could be leveraged from Africa-EU development cooperation instruments.
Confirmed key speakers to date include Professor John Wood, former chair of ESFRI and secretary general of the Association of Commonwealth Universities; Dr Elena Righi-Steele, Research Infrastructure Programme Officer, European Commission; and Dr Ndumiso Cingo, head of the African laser centre.
